The Schnapsen Log
“You First.” “No, You First.”
Nearly all of our work in these columns will be in the “endgame”, the last five or six tricks of the deal. Today we look at an important and common endgame strategy, in its simplest form. You are playing against your aunt, Polite Polona. Despite her nickname, Polona does not just let you win.
Polona: (26 points)
You: (43 points)
Game points: Polona 6, You 4
On lead: You
There’s no doubt that Polona has the trump control this deal. Plan the play. When you think you have a good plan, you are welcome to read my analysis.
